No the worst thing that could happen to someone is contracting ebola and infecting a nation. A little family trip isn't worth risking the infection of hundreds of more people.

It would be logical because of her own knowledge of the situation to convict her after treatment. Especially if she does infect someone else. If those lead to deaths she should get the chair.

You are too politically correct. You need to broaden your thinking rather than looking at the fine print.

Be brave. Don't be afraid.

I've said a couple of times that I'm not afraid of the virus. And I'm not. But I am afraid of the breakdown of society when this thing gets out of hand (which I feel it very likely will).

And...more than that...I'm just mad as heck.

She has a 7 in 10 chance of dieing, so its unlikely you will see her imprisoned.

does your link take into account the dumb ass people like this nurse that decide to fly after they have been exposed?

people in the states take flights to other parts of the states all the time for various reasons.
how many people from west africa fly around to other parts of africa?

im sure it does happen but not like in the states.

you factor in how fast people can travel around the states and you will see that its a different animal

Your post makes me sick. This is how all things start. You say less then one percent and I say the numbers are starting to grow exponentially. You remind me of the mass media comparing this to 55,000 flu deaths per year. They aren't compare able because the flu is everywhere and ebola isn't. Once ebola IS everywhere that's when you can spit these uneducated stats my way.

The woman has just be diagnosed with Ebola about the worst thing that could ever happen to a person, and you all want he arrested if she survives. Guess it doesn't matter if she infected anyone or not right??


Right... and how many people did she expose to "the worst thing that could ever happen to a person?" How can you take issue with the officials for all of their bad decisions and lack of proper precautions, and NOT take issue with this nurse. She made a bad decision and did not take proper precautions, risking the lives of others. She could be brought up on charges for making bad decisions and not taking proper precautions and causing the death of a patient in her charge. SHE HAD A PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE A RESPONSIBLE DECISION AND TAKE PROPER PRECAUTIONS TO MINIMIZE HARM TO OTHERS.

If she survived, she should face charges.

The people she may have infected also have a 7 in 10 chance of surviving.

Of course her best defense is to show that even the President of the United States says you can't catch it sitting next to someone with it on the bus.

Is it really her fault she took the chance?

I'm not sure... How many people have been infected with a fatal virus on a flight? Not many. How many health care workers take a big ebola dump on a subway? Not many but that's basically what she did.

Okay seriously...enough with the "arrest" crap.

She shouldn't be arrested because she did something incredibly stupid and irresponsible. She should, however, face criminal charges for her conduct...which may, or may not involve arrest and incarceration...but if so.....um.....YES to what we've said.

And NoAngel2u has said it best.

You cant jump to those conclusions. The transfusion Pham got wasnt just plasma it was plasma from an ebola patient meaning it has ebola antibodies. Ahe was a match with kent brantley.. I imagine the aecond nurse wasnt.

How about a nice prayer for the woman, for her and her family? Why the negativity? Why not the fear towards current medical employees working at the hospital, what if they stop at the grocery store on the way home from work? Or stop and pump gas? Or should all healthcare workers working in a hospital with a Ebola patient be quarantined??

Lol it's already predicted to reach 1.4 million without stopping? And the fatality rate is more around 90% because the WHO is counting ebola patients that are currently being treated as "survivors".
